Kier Indeed, quite the opposite. We see Microsoft slamming Linux at every opportunity, creating FUD through outright lies...
I've been saying the same thing to the ColaNuts for years and still they don't get it. "Why email granny such a large file?" Simply set up an ftp server and etc.......
The problem with many Linux advocates is they think that the rest of the world lives eats and poos operating systems. This why the Macheads and COLA-nuts clash so badly. The Maccies can't figure out why a person would want to tinker with an operating system and the COLA-nuts can't figure out why applications are really what count.
I've said it before, if you stood on the corner of 42nd and Broadway in NYC for 3 hours and asked people pbutting by the question "Do you know what Linux is?" you would get at least a 95 percent or greater solid no for an answer.
The real truth is the public at large doesn't give a hoot about Linux because they don't even know what it is!! Now as more and more corporations start moving to Linux on the desktop, and this is inevitable, people will start to discover Linux and it will be at that point that Microsoft will be in serious trouble.
